Here are some pics of my new Front supension . After 3 years of running a Warrior 6" over beam it was time to replace it for something that will handle the Odyknuck effect better. :wink: My good buddy Madmike made me up one of his special beams using 2 1/4" od 1/4" wall dom tubing. Because i dought i will bend this one like the other one, I desided to weld this one on in lieu of the traditional clamping method. I also decided to go with frame mounted shock towers in lieu of the beam mounted plate style like I had. there is just something about the tube sytle that makes the machine look way Cool. I went with Fodril Chromoly Combo spindles with no drop and 4" longer Woods Chromoly arms. I discovered after I got the spindles that they were set up for 1/2" or 5/8" Hiems in lieu of the 3/4" I was using. So I had to improvise and modify them. I then discovered that the Arms were for a non coil over shock and had to relocated the shock mounts to accomadate my Coilovers. I also decided the standard SACO rack was not going to cut it so I went with a new SACO Magnum Rack. I will not even get into the Issues I have been dealing with on that. I also decided i needed better lighting so i went with a pair of 6000 K HIDs on the mid mounting position and added a pair of 130 Watt Halogens to the front to act as fog lights in the Dusty situatuions. No pics of bumper installed.

Got to try them out over this past weekend. They are Awsome compared to the Halogen. I may rasise them up about 4". The shock towers create a black spot in the center.
